Bison’s inner city tap bar offers an insane number of draft options for modern craft explorers


As you enter the space you are left in no doubt you are in a tap bar. We counted a staggering 14 draft taps, not to mention the copious options in the fridge; however cask is nowhere to be seen

The style throughout all floors is contemporary and stylish in a recognisably playful Bison way. Clean cut and raw, industrial elements such as the raw wood and block concrete bar are softened by colour, plants and a subtle sense of humour splashed on the walls. The floors are connected by what looks like a bespoke yellow circular staircase. You get the feeling that no expense has been spared in the finish.

The pubs has had a host of different zany options in the kitchen and the current food option is Chuckaburger, a locally based Californian style burger kitchen serving Wednesday – Sunday.

All in all Bison have cracked it with their inner city tap bar. Bison Beer North Laine is relaxed and stylish while not taking itself too seriously. In offering an insane number of draft options – but giving the cold shoulder to cask – they are squarely aiming at explorers of New-World hops and innovative UK craft. This, coupled with the decor suggests they are aiming at the modern craft beer explorer, and for that kind of person it is a real playground.

Bison Beer North Laine rounds off an excellent portfolio of Bison branded drinking options across Brighton and Hove, which includes their bar/bottle shop in Hove and the Bison Beach Bar on Marine Parade.
